JOTW 11-2007
12 March 2007

“If there wasn't anything to find out, it would be dull. Even trying to
find out and not finding out is just as interesting as trying to find
out and finding out; and I don't know but more so.”
- Mark Twain, Eve's Diary

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for
professional communicators. Our network currently has more than 10,000
members!

JOTW is a cooperative service that relies on the contributions of its
members, like you. We share job opportunities, news and information
about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life's
peculiarities.

First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent. How does it work? If you find
out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me
(lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network. It's
that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. Did I
mention it was free? Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail
to
JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. It's free for them, too.

Will JOTW change your life? Maybe. It's made a difference for some
people. It might make a difference for you. Hopefully in a positive way.
Maybe in an unanticipated way.

JOTW has ZERO trans fats.

Remember, you can refer a friend to the network.  They can join for free
by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

How you can help: We are always looking for job listings. Send me a
listing that I can cut and paste into the newsletter. At a minimum, I
need the job title, organization and location, along with a brief
description of the position (optional), and contact info and/or a link
for follow-up. Some of you send me lots of jobs, and many of the
submissions must be edited heavily before I can use them. Please don't
have me look all this stuff up. Please.

Some people think that JOTW is a network of out-of-work communicators,
and once you get employment you no longer need to subscribe. Untrue. 
The JOTW network is packed with employed professionals who are helping
those of you who are seeking jobs. Once you find one, it's your turn to
help someone who is on the outside looking in. The true value of the
JOTW cooperative network is that we provide a community, and this is
especially valuable for those who are not working and do not have that
family of coworkers to socialize with. If you have subscribed for any
length of time you'll know what I mean.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

In this thrilling issue, these 50-plus job opportunities and more:

*** One Paragraph Pitch:
Hi.
 
I am Lis Herling and was most recently Senior Vice President, Director
of Corporate Communications for HarperCollins Publishers.  Prior to that
I handled Corporate Communications for Barnes & Noble and The Body Shop.
 Knowing that I wanted to make a change, I decided to leave my job late
last year and take some time to figure out what I want to do next.  I've
done some traveling, bought a house and have spent a few months with
renovations.  I'm now deep into my job search and looking forward to
seeing your Job of the Week emails.  I'm looking for a position in the
tri-state area, preferably in NYC or Connecticut (where I now live).
 
I was directed to you by Dana Rubin who is now at the Rockefeller
Foundation.
 
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for my search.
 
All the best,
Lisa Herling (lisa_herling@optonline.net)

***  I'm emailing printers about becoming JOTW sponsors.  It makes sense
to me, because communicators use printers a lot.  Today, with the
Internet, it isn't necessary to have a printer you can drive over to and
drop off the job (although I love the smell of ink).  But what amazes me
is how many printers do not have a website.

***  From Robert Holland, ABC:

Great trivia question this week.  It got me to thinking about what all
those Tony Burrows songs had in common — a great melody. Whatever
happened to songs with great melodies? I was listening to Linkin Park
with my son — it's his favorite band — and while they can grind it out
and I can appreciate that, it's not exactly melodic music. What songs,
past and present, do you think have the best melodies?

Robert

(Melodies?  This morning I can't seem to get “Pretty Lady” by Lighthouse
out of my head.  Your question got me thinking about the difference
between songs with memorable lyrics, those with power chords, and the
ones with the catchy melodies.

I think about “Don't Worry Baby” (Beach Boys), “I Only Have Eyes For You
(Flamingos), and one of my all-time favorites, “Moonlight Serenade
Great melodies would have to include everything on the Beatles' Rubber
Soul,” which transitioned the Beatles from power chords to the more
sophisticated lyrics of the White Album.)

(What melodies do our JOTW readers like most, and why?)

Dramatic results: One step at a time

Date: Monday, 25 June
Time: 10:30 – 11:45 a.m.
Track: Communication Leadership

Soap operas, telenovelas and other broadcast programming effectively put
the “mass” in mass communication. But can a daytime drama change the
world without tempting viewers to change the channel? What lessons can
be learned from popular programming that fosters social change and still
keeps its audience coming back for more?

In this session you'll learn:

How the strategic communication process is employed on a massive scale
How careful research develops believable characters to deliver key
information How critical social messages about abuse, sanitation and
HIV/AIDS are conveyed through entertainment

Presenters / Ned Lundquist, ABC / Washington, D.C., USA, is a senior
science advisor with Alion Science and Technology and supports the U.S.
Navy Surface Warfare directorate as senior communications counselor. He

PRSA's Silver Anvil Award.

Esta de Fossard / Maryland, USA, is the author of How to Write a Radio
Serial Drama for Social Development and Writing and Producing for
Television and Film. She has more than 20 years of experience using both
radio and television serial drama for behavior change.

William N. Ryerson / Vermont, USA, is president of the Population Media
Center. He has been involved in targeting key audiences in developing
nations regarding such sensitive subjects as sexually transmitted

“What is it that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells
a man's breast with pride above that which any other experience can
bring to him? Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others
have walked; that you are beholding what human eye has not see before;
that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea-an
intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a
brain-plow had gone over before. To be the first–that is the idea. To
do something, say something, see something, before anybody else–these
are the things that confer a pleasure compared with other pleasures are
tame and commonplace, other ecstasies cheap and trivial. Lifetimes of
ecstasy crowded into a single moment.”
